The Western Connecticut Council of Governments (WestCOG) has scheduled its third public information session on Westport’s Main to Train Study for Monday, March 25, at Town Hall.
The event is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. in Room 201.
According to Nicole Sullivan, WestCOG associate planner, the purpose of the study is to identify improvements for pedestrian, motor vehicle and bicycle safety along the Post Road and Riverside Avenue.
“An important component of the study process is to conduct outreach to Westport residents, business owners, commuters and other local stakeholders who are concerned about transportation in Westport,” Sullivan said.
The meeting is the third of five to take place during the study, she said, adding that WestCOG seeks participation in terms of ideas, observations and concerns.
The goal is to create better connections between the commercial center of town and the Saugatuck train station, and to promote non-motorized transportation choices.
Westport is paying $37,500 for the study. The amount represents about 20 percent of the approximate $182,000 cost, with the remainder being paid by WestCOG.
